Obesity a 'derogatory' word
Quote:Doctors tasked with tackling the country's obesity crisis have been told to avoid using the word obese, because it could be considered "unhelpful" or even "derogatory".

A quarter of adults in Britain are now obese, a figure that is due to more than double by 2050. Those from poorer backgrounds are much more likely to be obese than the more affluent.
But a government quango is now advising public health experts drawing up anti-obesity plans around the country to avoid using the 'o' word itself for fear of upsetting people.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/health...-Nice.html

Feminism and PC culture is spinning out of control. A spade is a spade. When will people understand it's not acceptable to be obese or a life choice? We shouldn't cater to them, they should just stop eating McDonalds and do some exercise.

It's definitely the West's perogative to rose-tint everything so people truly cannot see reality for what it is.

I just came back from Argentina, I could honestly count on my hand how many fat people I saw. Yet they have access to the same fast food chains as we do.

RE: Obesity a 'derogatory' word
A few years back, for the first time in their history, McDonald's showed a loss for a quarter. I live in NYC. It isn't uncommon to see McDonald's restaurants practically on the same block, and both will be packed. The losses came from stores outside the US. They expanded into cities/countries where the natives simply didn't want the food. They closed many stores, and all of the closures were stores outside the US. They will continue to expand here (and several years ago they went to 24 hours in certain locations) because for each of the 3 meals each day, and well into the night, Americans keep walking in and getting burgers and fries, shakes and sodas. It's ingrained in our culture, while it isn't in other countries and simply can't take hold.

RE: Obesity a 'derogatory' word
So surely whatever they replace the term 'obese' with will soon become a derogatory word too?

It's kind of like the word 'stupid.' You can replace it all you want, but while it indicates stupidity, people will be offended by it, because stupidity is an undesirable condition.

And this is the good news that will help to keep the obesity epidemic in check. Nobody can approach American levels of fattitude and obesity because nobody else has a culture that favors it so strongly. The nations with obesity rates closest to us (save for Mexico) are all about 10 percentage points behind the USA (34% obesity rate here vs. 24% in Canada). Even Mexico, at 30%, can't quite catch us. I don't see that gap closing anytime soon.

I do, however, expect a demographic transition to aid in cutting the obesity rates in many developed nations. Age = higher obesity rates, and our societies are disproportionately old and getting older with time. The previous Generations (mostly Boomers, really) are also the ones that brought obesity and fat tolerance to the forefront. Their eventual passing combined with lower obesity rates among the young (reports of childhood obesity's decline have been spreading), better fat-loss technology and greater awareness of obesity's problems and how to avoid it should make a difference.

It isn't all doom and gloom.

It's not even the food. I eat McDonald's and fast food pretty often but I can still see my abs.

Why do OBESE pigs feel they can talk shit about thin and skinny people all day long, but will have a heart attack when people start going after them? I'm sick of this fat PC crap. I get sick to my stomach when I see a fat ass who's my age and feel offended by their fat rolls.

I come up with a new name for fatties:
Porkylicious shaped.
Porkyliciously.
Porkynson diseased person.
Porkynson sized.
Jelly framed.

With God's help, I'll conquer this terrible affliction.

Seriously. I get made fun of consistantly by overweight friends/acquaintances because I'm physically fit, as if fitness is something to be ashamed of. It's unreal. However, you're labeled as a hater even with something as mild as "hey dude, you ought to come work out with me sometime. You might see a positive change in your appearance."

Fuck 'em. Fat people neither receive nor deserve my respect.

Any term is fair game, just say it with a condescending smirk. Plus you still have plausible deniability.

Say things that will make the fattie feel awkward, assuming you're pretty fit yourself. Eg:
"I'm trying to get in shape." Or "I'm trying to lose a little weight." [She starts to think, "If HE is not in good shape, what am I?!?!"]
"[after she mentions eating junk food] I'm so jealous of you, any time I eat that food it goes straight to my gut."
"I haven't been going to the gym enough lately, and I'm starting to see it."

These only work on fat white girls who aren't on POF (sup El Mech). Fat black and Hispanic girls are beyond the point of being insecure about their weight. When being fat is the norm, it's not even seen as a bad thing, it just *is.* So they won't realize you're trolling 'em.

All the obese bitches I know say curvy and voltupous. Which is an insult to girls who are beautifully curvy(that nice hour glass round ass and big tits curve you guys know what I mean) and voltupous(same deal as curvy).

It's like saying someone is retarded, mental retardation is the clinical term. Obese is the clinical term I mean c'mon.

Sugar and salt contents in fast/processed food is ridicuous. Governments should outlaw them and make restrictions on the amount of RDI products have.

No.

It's not the food. It's the lazy Person stuffing their face that leads to fatness. When I go to McDonald's I get 4 or 5 cheeseburgers depending on how hungry I am. That's 1200-1500 calories in one sitting, yet I am not a flabby beast. How? Because I work out and play sports. Stop the press! It's a miracle!

It's not the foods fault. Nobody ever got fat behind their own back. It's not like they woke up fat one day after they had a big mac. They put the food in their mouths. It wasn't an accident. Nobody tripped over and and accidentally swallowed a stray quarter pounder with cheese.

Government regulation shouldn't penalise the providers, it should penalise the consumers of the demerit goods. It's the same with drugs. Nobody forces anyone to buy drugs, drug dealers don't need marketing, drugs sell themselves because people are junkies. The government should focus on eliminating the demand for demerit goods rather than regulating the supply.

I know the salt isn't good for me but i have low blood pressure so I'm in not at risk at this young age.

This one was pretty good. I also liked Roosh's "Horizontally Tall" - that shit is cash.

Anyone see that video that was posted over here of Dick Masterson (rite?) telling that girl if she "hit the treadmill a bit harder she'd be at the front of the line"? We need more open fat shaming like that going on.

RE: Obesity a 'derogatory' word
There should be a RVF political party. Their goal would be returning the world to the state it should be in, and in the process make everyone realise how stupid/lazy/etc they are. PC is absolutely fucking ridiculous. I agree totally with Kitsune and tjames. Labelling them differently isn't going to make any difference, the fact is: they're still fat. If they can't get over that fact and get "upset because their doctor called them obese," then they can take their heart attacks and other health issues, and hopefully rid the planet of themselves. Fatties are pretty much learning from feminism in terms of "justifying" themselves. If something like what houston and Bronan mentioned happened to me, I'd probably lose my shit, especially being someone who was fat as a child.

I was walking up some stairs behind a fatty wearing a skirt the other day.. I had to stop and let people pass me, it was making me ill. Stupid people catering for fatties, rather than forcing them to lose weight.

I've inadvertently done the same thing. When someone offers me food I say, "No thanks I'm on a diet" even though I'm much thinner than them.

Not talking about fatness. You can be skinny and still have high cholesterol or other crap wrong with you..cancer ect.

Sugar + Salt are killers.

RE: Obesity a 'derogatory' word
Inventing new terms won't make any difference. Any fool can see through the charade. To me "BBW" = Big Bulbous Woman.

A suggestion to the net entrepreners out there. What about starting a People of McDonalds site. The same concept as People of Walmart. Basically users upload pictures of fatties inside or outside a McD's. Since Walmart hasn't been able to take down People of Walmart I'm guessing McDonalds couldn't do anything to take the site down. Some Aussie firm is cyber-squatting on the http://www.peopleofmcdonalds.com site but maybe they'd sell the domain, who knows.
